    Real Madrid won't win any of them.

    They're going to be Messi encounters.

    Im so excited!! I hope that the starting 11's for each team can play every game without getting hurt but i feel like that will be hard!

    As a Madrid fan the game I am most looking forward to and hope to win is the CL tie. And I think we will win that one. Hopefully we can win this Saturdays game because whoever wins that game will be the favorites heading into the rest of the games!

    Hala Madrid!!

    I want Real to win as many of them as possible. Sadly I can see it being a total whitewash for the Catalans... Mourinho masterclass required :beard:

    Barca have an advantage in that they only need to win 2 of the 4 games and yet come out as overall winners. They need to win one CL leg and the Copa Del Rey. They have enough of a margin in the league not to worry and just need to contain the other CL leg result.

    Im guessing Mourinho will just give up on the league? Makes more sense to get to the CL final (to fulfil his obsession :awesome: or instant success with a trophy.

    I think he'll be happy if he gets either/or of the above.

    Mourinho will win at least one I reckon. He won't get raped twice in the same season by the same team, he would have learnt from his previous mistakes I hope.

    No Carvalho at the back is a big blow though for the Champions League encounter.

    I cannot believe I live to see 4 "El Clasico" Real Vs Barca in 2 weeks :awesome:
    This is going to be the most intense football ever. Anyway I think Real will win the La Liga match, and Home leg of the UCL. Barca will win the Copa De Rey and their Home leg of the UCL. Real through on goal differences.

    UCL final: Manchester United Vs Real Madrid


    My dream, I really want to see it!

    Champions league final:

    BARCELONA V MANCHESTER UNITED (Barca to win)

    I can bet my life on that.

    As for the other matches - Barca will win at least 3.

    4 Matches within such a short time period somehow make this a lot less special. I also don´t believe we´ll be seeing the great football everyone is hoping for in all 4 matches. There´ll be one good match, but both teams will be very cautious especially Real, but they won´t defend as poorly as the last time and hopefully we´ll be entertained. My main point being is that the great matches of each season normally aren´t the ones which you would expect to be special and a lot of hyped matches are disappointing.

    But it´s still Barca against Real,which means I can already see people posting players names followed by this smiley :coma: after some mediocre goal.

    4 times playing each other in almost as many weeks... crazy

    Most excited for the champions league semi-final matches but El Clasico on the weekend should be good, it's odd to think that Real still often get trounced by Barca even though they have such an arguably amazing squad

    Yawn. La Liga to most fans is all about Barca and Real. There are other decent teams in it such as Valencia, Villareal, Sevilla and Athletic Madrid.

    Barca will win them all. Madrid are not a patch on them. Take a look at recent results that have all ended up in hammerings to Barca.

    Messi has never scored against a team coached by Mourinho.
    Ronaldo has never scored against Barcelona.

    What is the chance of both happening in the same match in any of the 4 games?
